    I feel like letting off some steam! Who’s with me? :icon_twis

    Ever wondered what’s up with some of the casino reps. names?
    Names like; David Diamond, Richmond Vega, Brooke Velvet, etc.
    If you didn’t realise it already, many of them are aliases.

    I first read about this on some other gambling forums.
    I believe they do it to protect themselves as one day their victims may catch up with them in real life.

    And how about some of the names in live chat?
    I’ve seen names like; Vernon, Alexandria, Bernadette, etc.
    It is almost like your dealing with the British Royal Family. ;)
    But when I ask where they are from I get told; Philippines, Thailand, Africa, and so forth.

    I believe they do this to put on an air of superiority.

    Actually, many casinos use pseudonyms for casino managers - it's a widely known fact. This allows casinos to keep a main manager in charge and if they switch out the people, the manager remains the same. Sort of like Ronald McDonald. There is no real Ronald, it's a clown actor who has been switched out a couple of times, and the company portrays a sense of continuity.

    It also protects people. There are some psycho players out there that are potentially dangerous people. You wouldn't want one of these "sore losers" stalking you or one of your kids after school I'm sure. I don't have any problem with casinos protecting their employees. It's the right thing to do, really.

    Continuing on with the theme…

    I really dislike casinos that lower the return of classic games.

    Some base examples being:
    - 5/8 Jacks of Better
    - 6:5 Blackjack payouts


    They think we don’t know what they do…

    They lower the return of their games and at the same time brag about their millionaire founders, big winners, and VIP pleasure cruises.
    Seeing through this charade it is clear that they are just misers who want to save a penny on the dollar by defacing classic games.

    Lowering classic pay tables is comparable to cheap Asian counterfeit brands.
    Or a baker that advertises premium meat pies but fills them with offal.

    Definition Wars

    When playing optimally and in accordance with the full terms and conditions.
    I expect all casino bonuses to be positive expected value. (+EV)

    My justification for this is simple; it’s the definition of the word bonus.
    The ordinary person who takes a bonus would expect the bonus to be a beneficial thing based upon the definition of the word.

    I expect all casinos not to require a deposit to cash out from no deposit bonuses. (NDBs)
    Again, it’s based upon the definition of the words.

    Otherwise, a casino should be found guilty of false advertising.

    Since the terms; bonuses and no deposit bonuses have been hijacked.
    To combat this, I propose that –EV bonuses be referred to as false bonuses and NDBs that require a deposit to be referred to as false NDBs.
    And that is not based upon opinion; it’s based upon the definitions of words. :Read:



    I think real question here is; are the pseudonyms used to protect themselves from disgruntled players, or are they used to protect themselves from the law?
    I recall reading about a case of stock market fraud where the perpetrator was impossible to catch because he used a long list of aliases.

    Update :)

    Before anyone says it; I know this is an old thread.
    It's more of a log for me to vent about online casinos.
    My latest observations, my latest collection of dirt on online casinos, etc. :cool:

    The Max Bet Scam
    I'm sure the max bet next to spin is not a mistake.
    If everyone weren't so busy trying to cure AIDS and saving the 3rd world I'm sure
    the software makers would be jailed. coz that is not a mistake.
    There is a difference between making an honest living and making a living through deceit
    and having a $80 max bet button a half a cm away from the spin button on a 1c machine
    IS deceitful and all the major software developers are guilty of this. If the world were a fraction
    more civilised, what they are doing would result in jail, I'm sure.
    Just simply by comparison, it's very strong evidence of a deliberate design flaw. I have played many thousands of different B&M slots and I have only played one: a 1c machine which has a $5 bet right next to the collect button. That's 1 machine out of about 5,000.

    "Roberto Garcia" the manager
    I think the bogus names that casino operators use are *at the very least* multi-purposed.
    And I think the larger purpose of these bogus names is to cover their identity from
    the law and any other form of justice. Nothing else makes sense.
    The idea that they do it to avoid some mad-man who has lost 10k at their casino and/or for a sense of continuity
    does not make complete sense. And if you examine reasons in real life, often they are multi-faceted
    but the minor reasons never get cited as "the reason." Usually the one that is cited is
    the big reason(s) and the big reason is so they can continue to rob people with impunity, or if things go sour, they can make a clean getaway.
    The fake names serve the same purpose as a mask does for a robber.

    Wild West OR...
    The wild west is a bad analogy to online casinos I feel.
    It doesn't represent the severity of the harm.
    The over-the-top Japanese post nuclear war animations represent it better; a guy walks into a bar, kills a man, and then rapes a woman.
    Post-apocalyptic films like Mad Max are another good representation. Where things are so bad, cannibalism and shooting someone over a can of Coke has become the norm.

    Words of Wisdom
    Like old people and the internet. They are pessimistic about anything new but they are spot on
    when it comes to internet casinos! What's the first thing an old pessimistic person would say to you about an internet casino?

    VSP (Very Stupid Person)
    I was reading the qualifications for a VIP program for a "Free to Play" IOS game recently.
    About 20% of the information on the webpage is making it clear that you probably wont get a sniff. And after reading it, I immediately lost all hope of ever being given VIP.
    It's very clear to me through comparison that the VIP programs casinos offer, are to some degree false advertising.
    It's as if they think by obscuring how hard it is to qualify, they will get a few people to spend more.
    Maybe online casinos do this unconsciously through greed? It might not be deliberate, it could be their true nature shining through in an artistic way.
